    Yes, I think we all know that Paul likes mids, but I’ve owned 2 guitars with basswood bodies (both of mine have maple tops) and played 3-4 more (friends Ibanez Jems) and the basswood bodies sound great! If PRS made the C24 Floyd model with basswood instead of hog, I’d have bought one 3 guitars ago :)

    I do like all of his guitars in theory, but every time I play one, it just doesn’t work for me. I had a Peavey 5150 212 combo for a little while, but it was too much. I really am a low gain person.

    Same here. I want my amp right on the line of clean and that magical, glassy, break-up so my playing keeps it under or pushes it over. That usually required low-gain pickups, moderate pre-amp gain, and roasting the hell out of the power tubes. I love it.
